It's So Classic Tag

Olivia at Meanwhile in Rivendell tagged me in this It's So Classic tag that's being hosted over at Rebellious Writing.  I loved how fun it looked and I do love classics so I'm thrilled Olivia tagged me!

Rules
1. Link your post to Rebellious Writing (www.rebelliouswriting.com)
2. Answer the questions
3. Tag at least 5 bloggers.
  1. What is one classic that hasn’t been made into a movie yet, but really needs to? Oh this is hard. I'd love it if The Blue Castle by Lucy Maud Montgomery was made into a movie. I'd also love it though if a decent film version of Mansfield Park was made. 
  2. What draws you to classics? I kind of like what Olivia said about how we are drawn to classics simply because they are classics. Normally I'm more drawn to classics that I know aren't going to be too depressing or dark. I like a little romance and some well written characters. 
  3. What is an underrated classic? Anything by Anthony Trollope. His books aren't really well known outside classics lovers and they should be more popular like Jane Austen or Elizabeth Gaskell (though I don't think he's quite as good as them). 
  4. What is one classic that you didn’t expect to love, but ended up loving anyway? I was surprised I ended up loving Dracula. At first glance it's not the kind of book I'd like but it ended up intriguing me the whole way through. 
  5. What is your most favorite and least favorite classics? Most favorite would of course be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Least favorite would probably be Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. 
  6. What is your favorite character from a classic? Or if that is too hard, one is your favorite classic character trope (e.g. strong and silent, quiet sidekick, etc.) I love so many of Jane Austen's characters. Elizabeth Bennett, Anne Elliot, Mr. Knightley, Mr. Tilney. So many!!! 
  7. What’s a popular classic that you felt wasn’t actually that great? I didn't love Gulliver's Travels, Beloved or Sound and the Fury. Gulliver's Travels I just think is dumb and Beloved and Sound and the Fury were weird and dark. 
  8. Who is your favorite classic author? Jane Austen and J.R.R. Tolkien. 
  9. In your opinion, what makes a classic a classic? Generally the definition seems to be a book that has stood the test of time and is still loved to this day. Sometimes I wonder how certain books have lasted but I guess to each their own. 
  10. Relating to newer books, what attributes does a book need to have in order to be worthy of the title “classic”? I truly think it's the test of time that counts. If it is good enough to last for fifty years as a loved book then it will probably be a classic. 
If you're a classics lover also consider yourself tagged!

  1. They definitely need to make a decent Mansfield Park! I need to read some Anthony Trollope, although I didn't think much of that Doctor Thorne series they did?

  2. I definitely want to do this tag although I feel like I'm not in the mental state for classics. I actually have the rest of Trollope's Chronicles of Barsetshire (I read the Warden earlier this year) waiting on me to gather the willpower to read them. Elisabeth Grayson mentioned them on her blog as being much better than his other books (I'd read one, and was like, well, I guess I'm done with him).

  3. I think you are the third person to have suggested "Blue Castle" as a movie adaption. So I think that means we'll be seeing it sometime in the near future ;)
    Thanks for joining!
